The use and impact of the Y7 Catch-Up Premium 2014/15

In September 2014 there were 20 students eligible for the catch up premium. The allocation for these pupils was £10,000

As in previous years we are using the Year 7 Catch-Up Premium to provide catch up support in literacy and/or numeracy as appropriate for the individual pupils. All eligible pupils are receiving small group teaching to enable them to benefit from extra individual attention. Many of the lessons also have at least one learning support assistant in the class.

25% of these pupils for English have already made two sub-levels of progress (at the start of Year 8)

67% of these pupils for English have already made one sub-level of progress (at the start of Year 8)

11% of these pupils for mathematics have already made two sub-levels of progress (at the start of Year 8).

83% of these pupils for mathematics have already made one sub-level of progress (at the start of Year 8).

Part of the role of 1:1 support is to gain trust and instill confidence in students. This scheme enables students to develop a positive attitude to school and a confident attitude towards learning. Mentors liaise with subject teachers regarding task management and the progress of the students. Future intervention strategies are developed through a dialogue between them both.
